Filters and masks in short supply for those with health issues

KAMLOOPS — There have been lots of people wearing masks these days with the heavy smoke.

And there have been advisories about changing your furnace filters if you haven't for a while to keep your air clean and your furnace operating properly.

But trying to find those items is getting very difficult. 

Many stores surveyed by CFJC on the weekend say they won't have furnace filters for at least a week, and for some stores, it might be two weeks.

Some stores have signs posted saying "all out of masks". 

So for now, it may be a matter of toughing it out until new supplies come in.
